Windows 7: Problem with windows 7 disc burner

25 May 2010   #11

Windows 7 32bit, Snow leopard

May i recommend buying an extra CD-RW or DVD-RW from a trusted dealer? that way after you install a cd burning program you could check it without loosing countless CD's or DVD's! even if something does go wrong you can always erase it!

Windows 7x64 Home Premium SP1

An extra external DVD drive may not be a bad idea but would not have solved the problem.
The sequence again for me was:
1) DVD had been used extensively without a single problem
2) Activated Nero
3) DVD drive became unusable.
4) Did sfc, full virus scan and any other test I could think of.
5) Did a sytem restore and whole OS became corrupt - shouldn't happen I know
6) Restored with a system image made approx 1 week prior to activating Nero
7) Everything works fine again including DVD
8) Used the DVD extensively expecting it to fail - it hasn't failed.

Here's a question for you all... What burning speed does the Windows Disc Image Burner run at? Does it run at the maximum possible or does it run at a low speed whatever the brand of disk you put in? It's not very often I have to burn dvd data disks nowadays, but when I do it's usually by this...
